Chitosan

Nature's "Fat Grabber"

ChitosanChitosan is a weight-loss aid from the sea. Chitosan, a fibrous material derived from the outer shell(exoskeleton) of crustaceans, absorbs dietary fat and carries it through the G.I. tract without being digested. Chitosan also helps lower cholesterol levels. Unlike dangerous and ineffective diet drugs which have marginal weight-loss benefits, chitosan has proven more effective for weight loss. It also has been shown to lower blood pressure in weight loss studies.

Chitosan is also effective in kidney disease and kidney failure, helping prevent further deterioration of function.

Dosage: For weight loss, take 6 capsules at the beginning of a high-fat meal. Be sure to drink 8 ounces of water with each dose. For kidney failure, 3-6 caps, 3 times per day between meals or as directed by a physician.

Dr. Myatt's Comment: Use with high-fat meals. Great support formula for weight loss plans. Because your body needs certain fats (Essential Fatty Acids), and fat-soluble vitamins, chitosan is not recommended for use at every meal, only high-fat meals.

Each capsule contains:

Serving Size: 4 capsules
Servings Per Container: 45

Amount Per Serving:

  • LipoSan ULTRA™ (high density chitosan marine fiber concentrate) 1000 mg
  • Citric Acid 300 mg
  • Lipase (3000 lipase units) 100 mg

Other Ingredients: gelatin, vegetable stearate

Contains ocean shrimp, soybean, wheat

Suggested Use: As a dietary supplement, take 4 capsules with 8 ounces of water, three times daily, before or immediately after meals, or as directed by a doctor.
